WHEELING, W.Va. (WTRF) – One of the region’s biggest food giveaways is set to take place this weekend.
For more than three years, the Apostolic Temple of Bethlehem has helped families across the region enjoy a great meal on Thanksgiving Day.
Their annual Thanksgiving Basket giveaway will take place this Saturday behind the North Wheeling Community Dream Center. Doors will open at 11 a.m.
They will give foods such as turkeys, canned goods and vegetables. There will also be a gift of clothing inside the Dream Center.
Reverend Darrell Cummings says it’s all about helping those in need.
Knowing that we are helping our neighbor. I think that’s the community. It is helping each other. I might be downstairs today, might be upstairs tomorrow, but you help me when I’m down, I get up, I can help you and we’ll be stronger for that.
Reverend Darrell Cummings, Pastor, Apostolic Temple of Bethlehem.
